Headin' Home

Many years have gone by since I left my Fortune Bay Home
Full of dreams and ambitions as a young man I wanted to roam
But now things are different, Iím older and wiser I guess
And I love to return to the home land that I love the best

My friends and relations, I miss them more every day
And in dreams I go back to my childhood in old Fortune Bay
I see a picture of iron scull and it brings a tear to my eye
For I know she stands guard over the birth place of this newfie boy

And I leave Bishops Falls headin down that Bay DíEspoir Road
Thereís a lump in my throat son cause I know Iím Headin Home
And when I reach St. Jacques I know everything is alright
I got 2 miles to go and Iíll be in Belloram tonight

That old fishermanís lodge is now a modern day home
The roads they are paved and the old fishing schooners are gone
And the old church looks the same as it did when I sang in the choir
The orange lodge gave itís music to the lounge on the government wharf

The dories made way for the faster and modern speed boat
As you walk around town youíll not see a sheep, cow, or goat
The steamers donít call here, they are a thing of the past
Now itís phone home visits, my things are changing so fast

And I leave Bishops Falls headin down that Bay DíEspoir Road
Thereís a lump in my throat son cause I know Iím Headin Home
And when I reach St. Jacques I know everything is alright
I got 2 miles to go and Iíll be in Belloram tonight

My Memories may fail me but I feel like a king when I say
Iím a proud Newfoundlander from Belloram down in old Fortune Bay
